Georgian Court University Reviews
I absolutely love GCU! I am a commuter, and my majors are Elementary Education and Psychology. I am enrolled in both honors programs offered at GCU: the scholars program and psychology honors. The professors are extremely attentive and very concerned with student academic success.
I love it here at GCU! While it isn't such a big party school there are tons of clubs you can join to make your time here interesting. Professors really care about your development. Since we have small class sizes they can tell if you're having a bad day or if something is a little off with you. If you need to dorm and get offered a spot in the honors program take it! Honors dorms are some of the newest on campus-they're huge and you share a bathroom with only one other person. We bring comedians&hypnotists to campus and have fun events like dip n dots, pool parties, build a bear, and roller skating. The food isn't that bad, at least there is a lot of variety and ice cream every day in Raymond. I changed my major and that was a really easy process. Since it's a small school, if you join clubs it's very easy to make friends, since club meetings are not full of a large number of people. Also, if you come here, we're big on bake sales so carry lots of $1s with you on your way to class!
The professors are attentive, understanding, knowledgeable, and over all wonderful. The small class sizes mean you really get to know your teachers and fellow students. However, the administrative side of things is extremely disorganized and often unhelpful. They frequently do not return calls, cannot easily be reached, and make last minute changes that are very confusing and inconvenient for students.
